Minutes of the November 27, 2010, Board Meeting

The annual meeting of the 101 Association was held at George Yarocki’s Residence on November 27, 2010.  President Randy Walker called the meeting to order at 10:15AM. The secretary called the roll and the following Board Members were present: Randy Walker, President; George Yaroki, Vice President, Joanie Walker, Treasurer,  Jeff Alprin, Membership and Web Site Editor, Jim Garripoli, Director, Bruce Rinchler, Director, Millie Yarocki, Honored Director, Will Paley, Honored Director;  Don Griswold and Doug Frederick; 101 Association Members.  Absent from the meeting: Brenda Crelan, Secretary;  Doug Strange, WOW Editor; Bob Kelly, Director; Kevin Arsenault, Director, Steve Rinker, Associate Director, Tim Raindle, Associate Director and Roving Reporter.  Doug Frederick was asked to perform the duties of secretary at this meeting.  Special orders at this meeting were suspended at the request of President Walker and seconded by Vice President Yarocki. 

The minutes from last year’s board of directors meeting were read by Jeff Alperin.  There was a motion to accept the minutes by Jeff Alperin, and seconded by Bruce Rinchler.  The vote was unanimously accepted. 


President Randy Walker offered his report focusing on the good and bad times of the year 2010.  The internet discussion group has brought great member interaction with a healthy discussion of facts, tips and history.  The National Meet and judging was well attended at Oley and enjoyed by all.  The off and on rain at Rhinebeck didn’t deter a few 101 riders from enjoying a road run on Sunday.  The bad times were centered around the WOW, which as you all know, was not published in 2010.  We need participation from the club with the WOW and new people need to step up to help.  The presidents report was accepted by George Yarocki. 

Vice President, George Yarocki, submitted the following report.

I am concerned as our club is in trouble.  Not financially, but communication wise.  Our news-letter is the communication part of our club, between management and the members.  When the new-letter fails, as it has for the entire year of 2010, we are in trouble.

However, I feel that all is not lost and the 101ers I have talked with are sticking in there and hoping their club will survive.  And we will survive, hopefully stronger than ever as the Indian 101 Scout is more desired than ever, worldwide.  In this down turn of the economy, the Indian 101 Scout has not only retained its value, but gone up slightly.

Steps need to be taken; our constitution must be changed to allow quicker communication between officers and directors.  Voting on important issues needs to be allowed by email.  Email gives a permanent record of exactly what’s written and ties the time down to the minute.  This would allow us to have directors and/or officers worldwide.

We must not get tangled up in majority rule with our membership.  A democracy elects its leaders and the leaders lead.  If membership becomes unhappy with a leader, then that leader is voted out. 

My hope is that we can sort things out at this annual meeting and get back on track.  Our news-letters don’t need to be great long literary works, just a few pages of information to our members concerning their club.  Even a booklet of twelve pages would be better than nothing at all.

The vice president’s report was accepted by Will Paley , seconded by Bruce Rinchler and unanimously accepted by all.

The Treasurers Report was submitted by Joanie Walker:

Treasurer, Joanie Walker, stated that income was up because no money was spent on the WOWs.  Furthermore, membership is down and only $40.00 of merchandise was sold at Rhinebeck.  Will Paley voted to accept the report, seconded by Jim Garripoli and accepted unanimously by all.

George Yarocki then offered the treasurers’ report for the Repair and Overhaul Manual Account:

The report was accepted by Will Paley, seconded by Bruce Rinchler and unanimously accepted by all.

            The membership report was submitted by Jeff Alperin:

We again held our own in tough times.  But, volatility has increased (the number of both new and lapsed members has grown).  We are trending toward the internet (up 60% to roughly one quarter) and toward the international (up 15% to roughly one third).  We now have more Australian members (15) than Canadian members (14).

We disappointed our members in 2009 and 2010 by missing our newsletter commitment.  I doubt that we can do so again without significant membership erosion.  It is also my opinion that we should not ask our current members to pay dues for 2011 (as they did not receive the promised benefits for their 2010 dues).

Website Report by Jeff Alperin

Late in 2008 we converted our website to use the Wild Apricot web hosting facility.  They specialize in membership support websites for clubs and non-profit organizations.  In addition to good web site development facilities, they support event calendars, photo albums, membership applications, online payment, merchandise management, and much more.  We pay them $50.00 per month ($540.00 yearly) for the facility because we have had over 250 active members at times. 

The membership management functions of the site track 879 contacts.  Of those, 528 are archived past members, 248 are active members, and 103 are lapsed members (2008 and 2009 members who did not renew in 2010).

98% of new members and 95% of renewals come from the website.

Some members have logged onto the site hundreds of times (489 is the high).

56 of 248 active members are “internet” members.  That’s 23%, up from 14% in 2009.

36 of 248 members have invalid email addresses.

Domains and web resources in use:

101Scout.Com, Walker, expires Nov 28, 2011, NOT Auto renew

101Scout.Org, Alperin, expires Oct 05, 2012, Auto renew

101Scout.Net, Alperin, expires Oct 05, 2012, Auto renew

Standard Goggle Apps Memberships for all three domains (50 mailboxes each).

Pisca Web Albums (Google) – 67 albums, 5.5 GB (20@$5/yr, 80@$20)

Plan for 2011:

Scan and post all prior WOWs for members only.  Where are they?

Get the Merchandise Mart running properly (but I said that last year)

Encourage members to put their photos into albums on our site.

Get valid email addresses for all members?

Possibilities for 2011:

Reduce website payments to $25.00//month ($270/yr) by managing members with invalid email addresses offline (must mail materials anyway).  Extra work for me.

Discontinue “internet” option.

Provide free email address to members (example: using Google Apps or iPage.  Could store email or forward to exisiting mailbox as member option.

Get iPage membership for $42/yr=unlimited mailboxes, and unlimited storage (but, for $5/year I would not bother to move our files).

Email membership cards for self print (upon renewal) or put on website.

The WOW report was submitted by Joanie Walker:

No WOW magazines were distributed to the membership in 2010 and a sincere apology was offered by Joanie Walker.  She suggested returning to the old way of producing, editing and publishing the WOW.  Doug Strange will be compiling and editing the WOW and forwarding it to Joanie as a complete document. Then Joanie would forward it to the printers, prepare each envelope for mailing and her local post office would affix postage and send them out.

The report was accepted by Randy Walker, seconded by George Yaocki and unanimously approved.


Memorabilia Committee: (Randy Walker and Doug Strange) Nothing to report for the year 2010

Merchandise Committee: (Joanie Walker and Bruce Rinchler) There will be no calendar this year.  There were only four t-shirts sold last year, so we will continue to sell shirts at the sale price and not order any additional shirts.  We are going to ask Dave Martin for a status report on the decal he is creating.

Fun Run Committee: (Will Paley) Three routes are set up for Rhinebeck and Fort Yarocki.

International Reps did not submit a report for the meeting.



Randy Walker brought put forth to the board that Steve Rinker is looking for a sponsor for his 101 Flat Track Racer.  Steve is an active member on the race circuit and is very competitive in the sport.  Jeff Alperin suggested that we post race info as it pertains to Steve on the 101 Website.  Jim Garripoli also mentioned that we could write an article about Steve in the WOW and post his results in each issue and mention that he is looking for a sponsor.  Randy will talk to Steve and get back to the group.


There was considerable discussion on the future of the WOW. As George mentioned in his report the WOW is the heart and soul of the club.  We cannot continue to count on one or two people to produce and publish the WOW and expect our club to survive.  Roving reporters must report, international representatives must contribute and members must assist in the success of their club.  It was suggested that a WOW content committee be formed to assist Doug Strange in the publication of the WOW.  The committee would be chaired by George Yarocki with Jeff Alperin, Jim Garripoli and Doug Frederick assisting.  Their function would be to gather materials from members, set deadlines with reporters, and research stories for the WOW.  The chairman of the committee will then forward all materials to editor and publisher Doug Strange.  Chairman Yarocki set the following 2011 deadlines for quarterly issues of the WOW.

January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and Oct 1st.

This motion was approved by Will Paley, seconded by Bruce Rin and unanimously accepted by all.

Jeff Alperin further proposed that we solicit a price from ACOM Publishing to print, package and mail the WOW.  George Yarocki will check on a price from ACOM.  This motion was approved by Will Paley, seconded by George Yarocki and unanimously approved.

There has been discussion among members about how to make the club website more user- friendly.  Jeff Alperin graciously agreed to write an article for the WOW that would offer a step-by-step procedure on information regarding login and use of the website.

Jeff Alperin brought up that some members question the use of membership list.  As you know, the 101 club annually sends out an updated membership list with the WOW.  There was discussion about having personal information readily available and others felt there was no issue because the information was only sent out to members.  The decision was sent to committee for further discussion.

It was decided that dues will remain the same for 2011. Since there was no WOW in 2010, Jeff Alperin suggested that every member in good standing as of 11/28/10 will have their membership renewed at no cost.  The motion was approved by Will Paley, seconded by George Yarocki and unanimously approved by all.

George Yarocki brought up the increase in cost of preparing the Repair and Overhaul Manual for sale.  He has included his thirteen tech tips with every new manual. It was his suggestion that we increase the price of the R & O by $15.00. 

Jeff Alperin proposed the following changes to the constitution and bylaws of the 101 Association:

Article 3 Section 2 – delete last line

Article 3 Section 5 – delete the word “annually” and insert the words “to upon request”

Article 3 Section 7 -  change to read “30 days in writing or in person”

Article 4 Section 2 - include the word “email” and change 45 days to 30 days

Article 4 Section 3 – special meetings will have 3 days notice by email or phone, only business specified in the notice can be transacted

Article 5 Section 1 – change to read “all directors and board members shall remain on office for one year”  Also, “Upon election each officer and director must supply a valid phone number and email.”

Article 6 Section 1 -  Remove “committees must have two or more” change to “one or more”

Changes were approved by Will Paley, seconded by  Bruce Rinkler and unsnimously accepted.

Jim Garripoli has agreed to work with Jeff Alperin to re-write the bylaws with the new changes in place.

Millie Yarocki will continue to look into a 101 patch.

The National Meet for the 101 Association will be the Meet at Oley.

Jim Garripoli has suggested that we have a barbeque and road run on July 3rd 2011 at Fort Yarocki located in Torrington, CT.  Will Paley has offered to help Jim with a road run route. 

Will Paley has also graciously accepted to write an article for the WOW on the Pewter Run.

The following letter was submitted by Richard Spagnoli to be presented at the 101 Yearly Meeting. 


I won’t be able to make the meeting but would be happy to call and make a proposal if you have access to a speaker phone.  If not, my thoughts are that the 101 Association could become a Chapter of the AMCA while retaining its identity as a Chapter with exclusive membership for owners of 101a or those interested in these bikes.  I suspect that most current members are also AMCA members so there would be an easy transition.

What would be the advantage of becoming a Chapter in the AMCA? As a Chapter, there would be the umbrella of insurance coverage the AMCA offers Chapters.  The 101 Chapter President could attend the AMCA Chapter President’s Meeting in Davenport each year and receive periodic AMCA Chapter President Newsletters.  In addition, there could be an AMCA National Road Run exclusively for 101 owners.  The Road Run could be anywhere in the country.  I would also like to see more 101s on display at National Meets, perhaps with exclusive areas for displaying our bikes like we do at Oley.  If there is enough interest in this concept, I envision 101 members in close proximity to National Meets coordination the display with the Chapter sponsoring the meet.

If we want to see our bikes on the road more, I think we have to do more than have a short ride each year after our yearly meeting.  You may even consider having a meeting of the Association at one of the National Meets to get more members involved (Oley).

No one seconded this proposal and the item was tabled.

Through the 101 Association Website, Jeff Alperin is proposing offering email addresses to the club as mentioned in his website report.

The next meeting of the 101 Association will be the Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2011.
